Today, Nevada’s Governor Steve Sisolak made sweeping changes to his emergency order enforcing capacity limits at indoor gatherings, bars, restaurants, and other businesses including meetings and conventions. Under Gov. Sisolak's direction, "State officials with expertise in public health and oversight have been working over the past weeks with his office to review current Statewide Standards and develop updates that will allow Nevada to continue lifting restrictions in a safe and responsible manner. This has included outreach to businesses, industry groups, faith leaders and more."

The updated order allows for meetings, conventions, and indoor gatherings of up to 250 persons as of October 1st. “We extremely excited with this news.
